There is more to PZZA.CO than their apparent dislike of the letter ‘i’. This modish Downtown joint is a sort of culinary equivalent of the chic fashion boutiques that dot the nearby Beirut Souks, what with its airy sixties stylings and upmarket clientele of ladies who lunch. A variety of classic Italian dishes is on the menu, though as the name suggests, it's the pizzas that draw in the punters. These are quite simply among the best in the city: large, light, crisp and perfectly balanced, and embellished by a range of posh variants on the usual toppings (taleggio cheese, truffle oil and whatnot). A handful of sweet pizzas, adorned with nutella and caramel, keep the theme running into the dessert menu. Beware: the swanky dining experience comes with a bill to match.
